My husband and I booked a 2 hour ride. Our guide, Renae (sp?), was really nice and took us to beautiful outlooks on the mountain top. We lucked out mainly because it was just my husband and I and the tour guide. So it was nice to have the small party size and great conversation without someone's kid screaming behind... More

We had a group of 7 riders, and went on the two hour trail ride. Our guides, Renee and Ian, were terrific! They assigned each rider a mount based on that person's experience level......they were very patient with our youngest, inexperienced rider and made sure she had a good time. We traversed 4 creek crossings, rode through conifer and aspen... More

We were pleasantly surprised on our latest trip to Buena Vista to see that the stables were under new management. My daughter and I decided to give them a try, as we were not impressed with the Mt. Princeton stable rides. We opted for a 2-hour trek up Mt. Princeton. Kelsey, our guide and daughter of the owner, was super... More

This looked very closed to me and appeared to be for sale.....too bad it looked like it could have been fun.

A new family recently took on these riding stables and they are wonderful. They really care about their animals and work VERY hard to give their guests the best experience ever! The trails are beautiful -- through the mountains, near/on the Colorado Trail. You get to "be the view" AND "see the view" here! Decent prices too!

Great ride, great people, fine horses. My kids went on several rides this summer and enjoyed each one. Have been on rides with several stables in the Buena Vista area and this is definitely the best.

I've ridden horses a handful of times in my life and found this one to be the most positive and memorable. I did the 2 hour tour along with my girlfriend and another family with an 8 yr old. None of us had significant recent experience. Our guide, Shane, took us across streams and bridges, ending at the top of... More

We took a beautiful ride yesterday with Jacob at Harvard City Riding Stables. The scenery simply couldn't have been more perfect. Jacob was great with my three kids. I had a couple who were pretty nervous (an understatement) and he was calm and supportive the whole time. Thanks for a great ride at a fair price!

We did the 2 hour tour and it was fantastic! My parents, who are in their 60s, my neice who is 7 and my 14 year of nephew all thoroughly enjoyed the tour! The 7 year old was on her own gentle horse and she really loved riding alone! Joe and Rhoda were super friendly, great with the kids and... More
